Adesto offers serial non-volatile memory for IoT

February 24, 2016 // By Peter Clarke
Adesto Technologies Inc. (Sunnyvale, Calif.), has introduced the Moneta family of serial non-volatile memories in capacities in four sizes up to 256-kbits.

Adesto was founded in 2006 with plans to develop a non-volatile memory based on the movement of copper ions in a programmable metallization cell. The technology was licensed from Axon Technologies Corp., a spinoff of Arizona State University. The company went public in October 2015.

 

The Moneta RM3000 series products are a family of SPI serial memories with capacities of 32, 64, 128 and 256-kbits. The memory makes use of Adesto's conductive bridging RAM (CBRAM) technology. All devices have both byte write and page write capability. Write operations are internally self-timed and the devices also feature a whole-chip erase function.

The chips consume about 10-microwatts during reads and 7.5-microwatts during writes. Other features include: a 4-wire SPI interface with a 1MHz clock rate, page size of 32-bytes, a 128-byte one-time programmable security register, random and sequential read modes.

These four memories have a power down mode that consumes only 0.05-microwatts.

Adesto said it expects the chips to find applications in battery-operated and energy harvest applications. "These products were designed to meet the specific needs we see emerging in the IoT and other connected devices, said Gideon Intrater, CTO of Adesto, in a press release.
